* Introduction (title, author, date, & graphic)
You and a partner will attempt to design and build a magnetically-levitated vehicle capable of traveling over a 16 ft. track in the shortest time possible. Students must use the electricity from the guide rails to propel their vehicle. All teams are given 4 magnets, 1 DC motor, and a high-speed propeller. The difficulty of this task lies in getting the vehicle to balance properly, keeping friction from the electrical contacts to a minimum, and maintaining speed. This project is a excellent example of a very common problem-solving technique; Trial & Error.
